Attended GEL conference
Today I spent the whole day at the GEL conference. It was organized by my friend Mark Hurst of Good Experience fame, and it went very well. Despite the fact that two of his speakers were no-shows, all the other speakers were excellent, and there was a good feeling in the room. I found the talk by Ze Frank to be the funniest, and Jim Kunstler's to be the most passionate.
I reccomend this conference to everybody who cares about good experiences. Next year's should be even better!

I have been showing this site to a lot of people,
and everybody seems to find it interesting. It is a Visual Thesaurus and it was made by a local, New York, company called Plumb Design. They used a product of their's called a "ThinkMap" to make it. This interface widget can be used to represent many kinds of data, not just semantic networks.
Also, my friend Adam Lindemann pointed me to a interesting search engine called Kartoo. It seems to make visual maps of concepts on the web. I found it quite amazing.
I use it to get my creative juices flowing, and to start thinking laterally.
